Do you hand out your business cards?

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Results

I recently signed two new buyer clients and upon my asking them why they called me, they said I was the only one who handed out my business cards when they were attending one of my open houses.  Even if it's not my listing, I bring along my cards and make them available next to the sign-up sheet and hand them out to people who say they aren't yet working with an agent. 

I was very surprised by this.  It seems to me it's one of the primary reasons for the non-listing agent to cover an open house (aside from selling the property).  My clients said they attended five open houses that weekend and because I was the only one who spoke with them and gave them my card, I'm the only one they remembered.

Thoughts?

I hand out my business cards all the time! I mean that's what they're for, right?

 

Not at someone else's open house, though.  If someone is taking time out of their lives to host an open house, it seems to me that their business cards should be the only ones available at the open.
